Experts claim Viagra increases likelihood of divorce

| Apr 18, 2013 | Divorce Mediation |

There are any number of reasons a couple divorces, ranging from a difference in approaches to child-rearing or financial disagreements. Some experts have also added to this list with the popular drug, Viagra.

California residents understand that divorce is an incredibly complicated and difficult process. Making tough decisions such as how to divide assets and splitting time with children are troubling topics for a couple who experiences simultaneously a deteriorating relationship. Unfortunately, there is another factor now apparently often leads to divorce.

The increasingly popular drug, Viagra, has many divorce experts speculating that use of such product increases the likelihood of divorce for some couples. Specifically, there are two major reasons why the drug has lead to the deterioration of some marriages. First, use of the drug sometimes leads to increased risk for extramarital affairs. Statistics demonstrate that more middle aged women are becoming intimate with older men who were incapable of doing so before. Second, the drug often increases sexual aggression and confidence in the bedroom. This unexpected factor can throw some couples off.

While Viagra has helped thousands of couples revive their love lives, it has also obviously seriously harmed other unions. When obtaining a divorce, it is substantially crucial the couple investigate all state laws in order to ensure an equitable and fair divorce. The state of California has set forth relatively helpful and clear laws pertaining to divorce. As a community property state, the couple’s assets obtained during marriage are split equally in divorce. Further, California considers the best interests of the child when ruling on child custody issues. Yet, it is sometimes difficult to interpret how the facts of a particular separation apply to the laws set forth. An experienced legal advocate is often in extremely helpful in facilitating these difficult applications.
